Co-op Local Community Fund

Our way of giving back to local communities

As a member, every time you shop at Co-op, 1% of what you spend on own brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Co-op members have already earned over £3 million for over 4,000 local causes

This money, along with money we raised from carrier bag sales, is used to support local projects that benefit the community close to where you live.

Select your cause

If you're a member you can choose the local cause you want your own 1% to go to.

If you want to be one of our local causes then you'll be able to apply for the next round of funding from May. Check back nearer the time for more details.
